Starward Industries is working on an exciting, first-person sci-fi thriller that isn’t launching in 2022 anymore.
Until now, The Invincible had a generic 2022 as its release window, but, just like the name of the game, it wasn’t invincible, as Starward Industries pushed it to 2023. The game’s Steam page reads, “The Invincible is a first-person science-fiction thriller set in a retro-future timeline. Waking up as a space scientist on a hostile planet, you embark on a mysterious mission to find the missing crew of your spaceship. Survival is a matter of your correct choices, taken whilst uncovering the planet’s secrets, which are more significant than anyone thought.
You are a scientist onboard an interstellar scientific expedition, suddenly thrown into a life-or-death rescue mission. Landing on the planet Regis III you have to find the missing crew members using some advanced space equipment whilst relying on your brains and instincts to survive on the planet, which quickly becomes unwelcoming. Soon you’ll discover that Regis III holds terrifying secrets which are uncovered while you’re piecing together the fate of your crew. And as you delve deeper into the mystery, you realize that perhaps you are not alone and that some places like this planet are better left untouched. But it’s too late to turn back.
[A] retro-future atompunk setting reminiscent of the era of the space race. Analogue yet very advanced technology allows drones and autonomous robots to support or spoil your mission. Immersive gameplay with a non-linear story shaped by your relationships, choices and persuasive skills. Beautiful, state-of-the-art graphics powered by Unreal Engine. [An] intriguing story inspired by Stanislaw Lem’s seminal sci-fi cult classic of the same name.”
